Insert small flat head screw driver between the triple and the bracket on the left hand side. Hold it vertical between the surfaces of both. Kinda like a door stop. Just wedge it in there. This will keep the bracket from turning.

Side Note:......."Damper"

say it with me.... Damper. Try holding it in place when you torque it. What's called for as the recommended torque? Can't be too much. 80lbs maybe?

I just put on my Ohlins dampeninger the other day. I'm assuming you've already broken off the little tab? Saw on the Fireblades site that this could be a problem so went with recommendations I found. Held the bracket in place while torqueing, also put some grease between the bracket and nut.
